The race to be Worcester’s mayor seems to be heating up, even as expected candidate Rick Rushton drops out.
Earlier tonight, Michael Germain told Jordan Levy on WTAG that he was strongly considering a mayoral run, especially in light of Rushton bowing out. Councilor Kate Toomey has all but confirmed that she’s running for the top seat, and Mayor Konnie Lukes is expected to run for re election. Gary Rosen wouldn’t give us a firm answer on Tuesday night as to his intentions, but some insiders think he may try to recapture and build on his strong showing from 2007.
So without consideration for outside candidates, there may already be four names in the pool, all from entirely different political backgrounds. Could make for an interesting few months.
